Here are the 7 things

  1. The financial cost of marriage is way more than being single
  2. It’s hard to reverse the debt mindset after you get married
  3. You must make a serious effort to fairly divide your time between your spouse and your vision
  4. Dating only gives you a small picture of the person you are marrying
  5. The Bible never gave males and females defined domestic roles
  6. Enjoy the time with your spouse before you have kids
  7. Love is not a feeling or an emotion but a commitment and act of unconditional service

Here are the scripture references
